I don’t agree regarding fitness for purpose.Saw it yesterday and was put off by the thing. Thought he was being polite about a £300k toy that he had been allowed to borrow.
Lovely noise, for sure, and so pretty.
I do that trip regularly but wouldn't use a Ferrari to do the job. Simply not fit for purpose. Noise, camber drift, 20mpg, limited luggage space, uncomfortable seats. There are many reasons why most used Ferraris have done less than 3,000 miles a year.
The SL or CL are better choices to take two people 800 miles in a day and a half. You'd get out at the other end as fit as a flea.
Want to take your bikes to the Riviera via Mont Ventoux, as well as bring back a few bottles of wine? Then the E500 is the better choice.

How fast can (dare) one travel with bikes on the roof?
I don’t agree regarding fitness for purpose.
Vive la difference.
I agree.Looks like everyone and their dog has been up Mont Ventoux (1910m). My progress was rather more sedate.

Incidently is it my eyes or trick of the light, but I think that £4.5k diffuser is squint...

I know many will disagree - but as an old Grunter (© DrFeelgood), I couldn't be ****d driving that particular car!
One of my friends cycled up it 5 years ago on a folding bike while undergoing cancer therapy for terminal prostate cancer. He died within 8 months of cycling up it. A phenomenal amount of determination!I'm still waiting for someone to post a photo of them going up Ventoux the hard way. (On a bike)
Dear lord, I wouldn't even dare to come DOWN Ventoux on a bicycle.
A female friend of my son drove to Ventoux one Friday, cycled it twice on the weekend and drove her VW T5 back on the Monday. That is one serious cyclist.
